The browser caching is temporary storage location in system which stores data of recently visited site URLs and every time it shows the same result of URL. Therefore, our attempt at resolving a Gmail login issue should be to clear it from the web browser.

2. Gmail Server Issue:

Gmail server has several data centers around the world where they mirror the database of particular user profiles. This is done so that, when one data center goes under maintenance or is shut down for some purpose, other one immediately takes over and ensures continuity of connection to accounts is not lost. However, at times the data centers are overloaded with requests, and thus server fails to respond leading to server issues reflecting in different parts of the world.

Note: In This condition you couldn’t do anything you have to wait for server response
